michelle obama. chris matthews? >> certainly made the connection, don't you think? i mean, so much of tonight was interactive. it was between her and that audience in the room. i thought the camera work was so important watching this on television. you saw on the faces of men and women, black and white, all different backgrounds, the connection. she was with people. the emotional connection, telling the story of her love affair with her husband. with her life of getting ahead. but there was one big difference than four years ago which just came through in the earlier speeches tonight. it was hope and change, yes, hope and change but not hope and change imaginally overnight. but hope through work and patience and time and effort and then change. i think it was a much more mature look at their own lives as they got there. i'll tell you, i assume most americans watching tonight who have been lucky in this country, have gotten close to the american dream, have done it the way they did it. with student loans. with good parents who made them study. of being parents who make their kids st
and michelle obama. and bill the lesson that clint eastwood taught america if you are in a debate with an empty chair, you have got to win the debate. yeah, i guess that was the first debate of this election. [♪ theme music ♪] >> bill: hey, good morning, everybody, good to see you this morning, and welcome to the "full court press," on this wednesday september 5th, coming to you live on current tv all the way across this great land of ours again from charlotte, north carolina capitol of the democratic national convention, and day two of the democratic national convention. what a great night last night. julian castro, giving the keynote speech and michelle obama giving the most powerful speech of the night. we'll hear from elizabeth warren and vice president joe biden here tonight. what a difference between here and charlotte, and the lackluster event in tampa last week. we'll have randi weingarten. but first the current tv update from lisa ferguson. >> hi bill. good morning, everyone. the dny continues tonight with a knew round of speakers. elizabeth warre
. the first lady of the united states, michelle obama, has tonight's most critical job, reminding voters why they liked her husband enough to put him in the white house, and to make the case for giving him another four years. joining us now in our coverage all of this week, anderson cooper, high above the floor. >> our new poll shows why that case is more urgent than ever for the democrat. new numbers on mitt romney's convention bounds. john, what are the numbers? >> anderson, as the democrats open their convention tonight, let's look at that very question. we know governor romney got a one-point bounce out of his convention, not so great, about half what the president got four years ago. not a big bounce. where does that leave us? the democrats' opening night two months from a critical election day. doesn't get any closer than that. 48-48. >> the convention will pay tribute to a champion of health care reform, the late senator edward kennedy, and the woman who stood by his side, vicki kennedy. >> meanwhile, the floor plan is completely different from the republican convention in tampa. sinc
from the star of the obama family, michelle obama. you know, this is just like a relay and you start off with the fastest person. so i'm going to be at home and i'm going to be watching it with our girls. and i am going to try not to let them see their daddy cry. because when michelle starts talking, i start getting all misty. >> let's go to our white house correspondent brianna keilar. she's downstairs here in the convention at the time warner cable. what else do we expect the first lady to say tonight? >> wolf, we're really expecting her to stay somewhat on message when it comes to what president obama's campaign is all about. that he's making decisions putting the middle class first. but she's going to be doing it. a source close to her tells me from a very personal place. she'll obviously talk about herself is the person who knows him best, around him at very pivotal moments and she'll talk about how she's seen him make difficult decisions, whether it be health care reform or over the auto bailout. and that she has seen him make these decisions putting the middle class first. tha
-- here is a picture of the president and his daughters watching michelle obama from the white house last night. you can see the tweet that his campaign sent out last night. next call comes from michigan, independent line. caller: i think they should be the first ladies, supportive from the outside. i really don't feel that this buildup is necessary. just bring out the president and let him give his pitch and let's get on with the show. some of the stuff that she said makes no sense to me. with all the dinners and he is a way so much, i would have liked to of heard from melia and sasha and their impressions of their dead. how their time in washington has been as compared to chicago and how they are getting along in school and if they're looking forward to a second term. she looked very pretty and she is made up and she is dressed but do we need this? host: on your screen is a live picture of the inside of the time warner cable arena in charlotte at the democratic national convention and it convenes again tonight at 5:00 p.m. bill clinton will be the closer tonight to deliver the nominati
of obama's little sister. i am michelle obama's older brother. any 7-footers out there come give me a call. >> craig and i come from different states. we have had different upbringings. as you can see, we have different perspectives on the world. >> but no matter how different winning seem, we share a set of values are -- how different we may seem, we share is set of values, values that are as important in chicago as they are in honolulu. a willingness to work hard, a commitment to education, and looking out for each other. they are the values of how barack and michele have lived their lives, raise their nieces, and lead this country as president and first lady of the united states. [applause] >> four years ago, at this convention, i spoke with you all about how barack and i did not grow up with much in the wake of wealth. but we were blessed with a mother who taught us that education is the surest path from limited means to limitless opportunity. she inspired me to become a teacher and she inspired barack's deep commitment to giving all our young people the opportunity is our education ga
to be done. >> tonight we heard from the star of the obama family. first lady michelle obama. this hour we will be showing you the big moments, the first speeches and we begin with the first lady. take a look. serving as your first lady is an honor and a privilege. but back when we first came together four years ago, i still had concerns about this journey we'd begun. while i believed deeply in my husband's vision for this country and i was certain he would make an extraordinary president, like any mother, i was worried about what it would mean for our girls if he got that chance. how would we keep them grounded under the glare of the national spotlight. how would they feel being uprooted from their school, their friends and the only home they had ever known. our life before moving to washington was filled with simple joys. saturdays at soccer games, sundays at grand's house and a date night was either dinner or a movie because as an exhausted mom, i couldn't stay awake for both. and the truth is, i loved the life we had built for our girls. and i deeply love the man i had built that life
to what people are expecting from the first lady michelle obama's speech tonight. >> look, that is part of the reason for the excitement because first of all, have you these people and the configuration as you can see behind me, i'm above the podium which is a really great vantage point. as you can see, people are -- very, few people, very few delegations are actually on the floor. it is a bowl. they are up and around on the sides. that is, i think, making it sound a lot larger, louder, than it actually might be. it is very loud. they are very excited and they are not all here yet. there are a lot of empty seats. typically people are at dinner now but will be here in time for the keynote address. people are excited to hear castro the keynote speaker, but principally this is michelle obama's night. she is already throughout the campaign. they sent sought an e-mail a half hour ago asking people to text and send in $3 donations in advance of her speech. she told ryan seacrest today on his radio show she had not watched ann romney's speech and came here briefly to look at the stage and look
, talking about ann romney and michelle obama working to get the voters engaged and last night she spoke on that subject specifically, and she addressed the congressional black caucus and take a listen. >> this is the movement of our era, protecting that fundamental right not just for this election, but for the next generation and generations to come, because in the end, it is not just about who wins or who loses or who we vote for on election day, it is about who we are as americans. >> anna mcpike, you have spent time covering michelle obama, and hands down the most popular obama in the country. >> no question. >> is there a risk of overusing her? a risk of using her too much? >> well, no. because what they are doing is sending michelle obama to a number of college campuses and states like north carolina and virginia and florida, places where president obama is not going because he is having bigger rallies at places like ohio state university at one of the first rallies there this summer, but while people are paying attention to the food fight going on between mitt romney and president
over town. we just heard a variety of the democrats bad mouthing mitt romney. last night michele obama did not mention mitt romney's name. the first half of her speech could have been from a conservative because it is personal responsibility and the second half about her husband and why shoohe should have the key to camp david four more years. >> so many people had a hand in our success. from the teachers who inspired us and the janitors who kept our school clean. barack refused to lits lis to folks who told him to leave health reform another day and another president. he didn't care whether it was easy to do politically. that's not how he was raised and i hear the determination in his voice he tells me. you will not believe what folks are going through. it is not right. we have to work to fix this and we have so much more to do. >> brian: i think she was strong. she was poise and delivered a great message and the delivers the young family growing nup the white house and needs more time. i thought one thing everybody talked about the mayor of san antonio. julian castro and i think when
the country. i thought this was a very well orchestrated convention with michelle obama giving us more insight into barack obama the man. followed by bill clinton talking about the obama record on the economy and trying to bring people together. and then teeing it up for president obama to talk about what's next. and i thought that was very powerful. >> but you know, mo, the first lady did do a great job in her speech. bill clinton did an amazing job as well. the criticism of the president whilhe set certain goals and said this is how many js i want to create, this is what wae concerned,he environment is concerned, he didn't go into specifics and lay out how he's going to achieve those goals, mo. thatas folks. and th were disappointed he didn't use that venue to do it. >> well, look, ts speech was really the first stop in the general election campaign. and this -- i don't believe -- i know there's a lot of people wondering what kind of bounce either side is going to get. i don't believe there is going to be much bounce for either side because i believe this is going to be a continuous conversa

?" or "imagine if michelle obama said that." it was probably not something that the campaign wanted as a structure of a statement. she was talking about her husband and talking about seeing her husband. the responses that you chose to run for office. what we demand of our candidates is a lot. even for the criticism that he is getting about not doing enough in terms of events, he is doing a tremendous number of fund-raising, having a discussion about whether we should do other things. it is incredibly hard and incredibly grueling. it is impressive that they don't make more mistakes and off-cue moments. i can't imagine watching my husband go through that. my husband being very protective of me when they are critical. >> my family loves reading by criticism. why do you get so upset about it? thinkingthat they are it. i will say that ann romney is feisty. i love what she did because it is so he a man at the helm tamp they don't her down too much. -- because she is so human, i hope they don't tamp her down too much. she is looking right at you, our eyes are not batting around. she is foc
